The X-traordinary origin story’
Pearl is a 2022 horror film directed by Ty West about the early life of the titular X villain. It is set in 1918.

The movie stars Mia Goth, who co-wrote the screenplay with Ty West, plus David Corenswet, Tandi Wright, Matthew Sunderland and Emma Jenkins-Purro.

Earlier this year, West provided some background to the movie to Bloody Disgusting: “Part of the idea of this movie that’s cool to me is that there is a bigger thing to it all. What I can tell you about Pearl, because we’ve already made it and it’s done, is it is very much a story about Pearl. So you will learn more about her. It is stylistically very different from X. You do not need one without the other, but they enrich each other in a specific way. In the way that X is affected, let’s say by 1970s horror independent filmmaking and Americana cinema, Pearl is influenced by a very different era of filmmaking. If we do the third one, it will be affected by a different type of cinema.”
